Description
GB5803: Guardian Back Up - Double Edge, Plain Edge
Gerber
 
Remember the very first time you saw an image of the Stealth Bomber? With its aggressive lines and matte black paint job? Well the Guardian Back-Up probably belongs on board that bird. Because the overall look and attitude is much the same. This is a professional fixed blade knife that takes a mighty serious cut at self defense. It features blackened and therefore non-reflective stainless steel in a 3/4 tang blade. It's lightweight. It's compact. It's effortless to carry, and agile to use. Importantly, the Santoprene-covered nylon handle is very much at home in the hand of those who take on life's nastier tasks. Don't overlook the patented sheath. It lets you adjust the withdraw tension to suit your individual style. Clip it to your boot or belt or your strap, and you'll never be without a reliable back-up.

Pros: None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material
Not worth the money at any price
I had a Mark 1 boot knife with black serrated blade that was stolen from me and wanted another. Since these are long gone as new I looked for a new replacement and bought the Guardian knife. It is no where near a replacement and is not a good knife. When compared to a Mark 1 it is apples and oranges. I bought a used Mark 1 right after see the Guardian, what a POS!

love it
Wore it around for a few days and I couldn't tell it was there. I guess that's both a pro and a con.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Noisy at first look, but improved and silent now.
Adapt, Improvise, overcome. Please people, get your collective heads out of your buttocks. Peel a tip off a Q-Tip, put it in the bottom of the case, and instant no noise. It isn't rocket science.
